Product: Wild Friends Foods Chocolate Sunflower Seed Almond Butter – $1.99+
Remember that Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter that I raved about not too long ago?
No? If not…refresh your memory here. If you do…welcome to me sampling some more flavors from Wild Friends Foods. Because the delicious awesomesauciness of the Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter was enough to drive me to try some more options. And while I was in Birmingham, Alabama a couple weeks ago, I picked up some more sample packets of the Wild Friends Foods line of peanut and almond butters. I only hoped they would live up to the one that really blew me away.
So…I came home with three flavors…and had some gluten-free bagels in the freezer.
See where I am going with this?
So, one morning, I toasted up these bagels…and realized I used up all my vegan cream cheese.
Never fear. Never. Because where cream cheese fails…nut butter comes through.
My roommate and I sampled two different flavors that morning, as these are the small sample packs. But…in this blog I am focusing on the Wild Friends Foods Chocolate Sunflower Seed Almond Butter.
Chocolate. Sunflower Seed. Almond Butter.
Three epically delicious things in life all combined in one plastic jar with a cute winking squirrel on it. How could this be bad?
In truth…it can’t!! And…it wasn’t.
The Wild Friends Foods Chocolate Sunflower Seed Almond Butter is crazy good. It isn’t too sweet, so they’ve managed to strike a nice balance between the amount of chocolate and the salty-savory flavor of the nuts. It was creamy and amazing. And who doesn’t like something chocolate for breakfast, right? This was really good on my gluten-free bagel. I was noshing it happily and enjoying the blend of flavors. Almond butter is the most prevalent, but it leads off with that sweetness of the chocolate. And the sunflower seeds…nice touch that adds great texture. It is like nothing you have ever had before…but you will totally want it again.
Let’s talk basic and simple ingredients, okay? That’s easy to do…because Wild Friends Foods only uses real ingredients in their nut butters.
